When the sun comes up on a sleepy little town
Down around San Antone
Said the folks are risin' for another day
'Round about their homes

The people of the town are strange
And they're proud of where they came
Well, I'm talkin' 'bout your China Grove
[Incomprehensible], woah oh, China Grove

The preacher and the teacher
Lord, they're a caution, they are the talk of the town
And when the gossip gets to flyin' and they ain't lyin'
When the sun goes underground

They say that the father's insane
And dear Mrs. Perkin's a game
Oh, talkin' 'bout your China Grove
[Incomprehensible], woah oh, China Grove

Every day there's a new thing comin'
Ways of an oriental view
The sheriff and his buddies with their Samurai swords
You can even hear the music at night

Though it's a part of the Lone Star State
People don't seem to care
They just keep on lookin' to the easy way

Talkin' 'bout your China Grove
[Incomprehensible], woah oh, China Grove
I'm gonna tell ya now, yeah
